into stylish enhancements, step-by-step instruction and advice from "this old house." my name is don hoag, and i'm an artist. years ago, my wife decided she wanted a sculpture garden out in front of our house so i began to learn how to weld. and that developed into learning how to create different kinds of creatures that come out of imagination. i find it tremendously gratifying to create these things. i feel creative. what i usually do is i find an old tool, and i look at it, and it may suggest something right there. or i may wonder, like, here's a length of pipe, i wonder how i can bend that and make it curve around. and that will suggest an animal or a shape of some sort. you never know where it's going, but it develops as you proceed. i get raw materials from scrap from things that have been thrown out on the street. one of my greatest joys is rescuing items that other people feel have passed their usefulness, and finding new uses for them, creating something interesting and perhaps even beautiful. it's all in the, as they say, eye of the beholder. it's great. be more -- pbs. pbs
